Marine Corps Hymn

what does tripoli have to do with it?

Received: 14Sep2010

The Marine Corps 'Battle Hymn' (the oldest military hymn) mentions the Jihad against America by Muslim Terrorists circa 1805.

From the Halls of Montezuma,
To the shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country's battles
In the air, on land, and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom,
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
Of United States Marine.

If you wonder about the reference to Tripoli:

How long have the United States Marines been fighting Islamic Terrorists to protect American Citizens? How long has Islam been attacking the United States? Many have forgotten or did NOT know that America's 'First War' after the Revolutionary War involved Islamic Pirates from North Africa that resulted in a battle in Tripoli (today's Libya).

Muslim Masters

The Muslims main source of income was the white slave trade that involved sailors and passengers from Europe and America that had been captured while Pirating ships. The historian Robert Davis, in his book 'Christian Slaves, Muslim Masters': White Slavery in the Mediterranean, the Barbary Coast and Italy, 1500-1800, estimates that as many as 1.25 million Europeans and Americans were enslaved, tortured and worked to death by their Islamic masters. Thomas Jefferson asked the Ambassador from the Muslim Countries of North Africa why the American People was being attacked, enslaved or murdered, when America had never menaced or quarreled with any of the Muslim powers?

It has been a long war and it is not over

Thomas Jefferson later reported to the State Department and Congress:
"The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners." Islamic terrorists have hated America and Islamic terrorists have attacked, enslaved and 'Murdered' Americans for over 200 years.
